Long Description:
Like 'all' McDonald's, don't expect to be able to take your Mobile-home through the Drive-Through, as there is a stated Height Clearance of 2.0 metres, tho the 'check bar' is suspended about 2.5 m off the ground! 'Obviously' at 6.30am there was plenty of seating, but there was a dearth of power points to charge my laptop and phone; so it was back to the car to use the invertor for the laptop, and 'lighter' for the phone, which were running low. The WiFi did work when I had the car the closest possible.

As I was having a couple attempts at finding some geocaches in the area of Kilcunda Reserve this became a temporary 'base', while I tried to get further information to find those challenging geocaches. I'm 'afraid' that I probably did use more than 'my fair share' of download and Up-load, as I was also catching up on a lot of emails, Geocaching logs, Waymarks, and Pocket Queries.

Phone: (03) 5672 1131 [Only the ONE McDonald's in the area!]

So while I visited, purchased and ate, and used the WiFi from Wednesday night, through to Friday morning at various times, the only photos taken were from 0630, Thursday, 26 May, 2016
